Jonathan laments Kano, Yobe attacks

31 July 2014, 08:36

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan deplored the continuing terrorist assault on Kano and the bombing of the Aminu Kano College of Islamic and Legal Studies in the region.

Jonathan also condemned the attacks on two mosques in Potiskum, Yobe State.

“President Jonathan condemns the repeated targeting of worshippers and innocent students who are the nation’s future by depraved terrorists,”
Reuben Abati Special Adviser to the President Media and Publicity, stated.

He said the President believed that the callous attacks on soft targets fully affirm that the terrorists were “nothing but bloodthirsty adherents of a warped and retrogressive ideology.”

 “No amount of intimidation and violence would stampede the government into abandoning its goal of giving education a new lease of life and opening up access to all young Nigerians who wish to improve themselves,”
he said.

Abati added that the President directed the Armed Forces, Police and other national security agencies to further enhance security around educational facilities in states prone to terrorist attacks.

The terror attacks largely blamed on the Boko Haram have killed thousands over the last five years
